Three Ways To Stay Active While Playing Video Games

Fitness is an essential part of your daily life –– it’s recommended you spend 150 minutes a week sweating it out. How do you get your exercise in? Perhaps you go for a run or take dance classes. If you’re like many Americans, you may struggle to get your optimal amount of exercise.

Did you know you can stay active with video games? Gaming may seem like a way to sit back and relax, but you can burn hundreds of calories in front of a console.

1. Wii Fit

Wii Fit was introduced a decade ago, and it’s still one of the most popular video games on the market. Players can choose from more than 40 activities, and there are unique options like snowboarding, yoga, and tennis. Some of the high-intensity activities like island running burn 165 calories per 30-minute session.

2. LaserTag

While GameTruck Los Angeles specializes in video game parties, we also offer laser tag parties for up to 12 people. Your party guests will get to play laser tag wherever you please––whether it’s a park, playground or backyard. LaserTag will keep you entertained and engaged, and you’ll burn calories while playing.

3. Just Dance

You don’t need to be a dance expert to have fun playing this game. All that’s required is a willingness to try new dance moves and groove to your favorite songs. Just Dance can be played with your friends or alone, and you’re tasked with mimicking the dance moves you see on-screen.
